[DECK TECH] – Dragonic Overlord the Striken

[DECK TECH] – Dragonic Overlord the Striken



How’s everyone doing today Cardfighters!

I am here again today to give a budget deck tech, this deck has a special place in my heart, and because it was a deck I had a lot of fun testing it with friends. Let me tell you, it is a deck that is not short of the word “gimmick”. Have you ever wished you could finish your opponent off on grade 3 turn with the help of 16 crits? Then look no more, I gotchu fam! This is the 16 Crit Dragonic Overlord “The Striken” deck!

So, how does the deck work? Much like the “Go for Broke Dimensional Police” deck, this deck is quite linear. The deck works best if you go first, because you want to get to grade 3 first and hopefully finish. What you try to hope for, is getting your ideal rides, and that is “Prowling Dragon, Striken” at grade 2 and “Dragonic Overlord “The Яe-birth”” at grade 3.

It is important you ride “Prowling Dragon, Striken” because it serves as a “mini- breakride”, although you won’t be able to attack for the turn, it is 10k base and gets 5000 power if it is attacked by a unit that is not boosted. Also, the main reason we want to ride this unit is because when another kagero unit rides this unit, choose one of your vanguards it gets +5000 power and +1 Crit.  Which leads us to the star of the deck, Dragonic Overlord “The Яe-birth” its skill is:

“[ACT](VC) Limit Break 4 (This ability is active if you have four or more damage):[Counter Blast (1) & Choose one or more of your «Kagerō» rear-guards, and lock them] If the number of locked cards you have is five or more, until end of turn, this unit gets [Power]+10000 and “[AUTO](VC):[Choose two «Kagerō» from your hand, and discard them] At the end of the battle that this unit attacked a vanguard, you may pay the cost. If you do, [Stand] this unit. This ability cannot be used for the rest of that turn.”

This is a hefty cost, but, to re-stand and potentially finish your opponent on your grade 3 turn it is not too bad. Especially, when your vanguard is swinging for at least 21k and when your opponent is a 9k grade 2. (That’s 15k for 1 to pass that is at least 2 cards from hand) If you are drive checking crits it also helps.

Early game, you want to try to rush your opponent, get to 3-4 damage. That is within the range of lethal. So that when you get to grade 3, you can just focus on powering up your “Dragonic Overlord “The Яe-birth”” with cards such as Dragon Dancer, Arabella, Embodiment of Perdition, Sahr, and Embodiment of Perdition, Majid  making your vanguard a huge re-standing goliath with crit!. Now, that is a force to be reckoned with.

Lizard General, Conroe is used to filter out the grade 3s from the deck to check into more triggers. And, the Calamity Tower Wyvern is used to draw into pieces. Remember, “Dragonic Overlord “The Яe-birth”” is a limit break 4 unit, so taking early damage is not bad to get limit break or just having “Seal Dragon Sprite, Mulciber” is also good.

Hope you guys enjoyed this deck as much as I have enjoyed testing it out, give it try for yourselves!
